PROJECT MANAGEMENT CONCENTRATION COURSES

To provide thorough familiarization with the many theories and techniques of operations management as they apply to accomplish objectives in all types of business operations and many other walks of life, but especially to manufacturing and service operations.

According to a recent study of Human Resource Managers, effective project management is one of the most coveted skills for new hires in the modern economy. This course will introduce you to the power of effective project management through two primary frameworks: waterfall and agile. You will also learn vital project-management concepts that can be applied to a wide range of industries and occupations.

Any successful project starts with a plan. This course provides students with a deep understanding of project planning. Projects are a series of tradeoffs between scope, cost, and time, so you’ll need to learn how to balance them in order to create a plan which is realistic and achievable. You will also learn how to leverage resources, and how to manage risk, quality, and stakeholder expectations to ensure project success.

In today’s fast paced work environment, no project proceeds from beginning to end without
encountering unforeseen challenges, and the changing scope, priorities or context of a project
may require various adjustments. Additionally, project implementation and closure requires
conviction and trust in established processes and personnel. In either context, these are vital
parts of a project’s success and are reflections of how future projects will be managed. This
course covers project execution, monitoring /control, implementation / handover, DevOps, and
project closure. This course is intended to finalize a student’s preparation for their Project
Management Practicum and Internship.

This course is intended as a culmination of a student’s work in the Project Management Major.
Students will work in groups to manage a simulated project from scope to completion -
encountering - and overcoming - challenges and complications along the way. This course will
also provide students with an overview of the product life-cycle, governance, and other topics to
help contextualize project work.
